Young people start college or tech school with the best of intentions and perhaps money they have saved and a scholarship or two.  The first year goes well, but what about the second, third or fourth year?  Is the money still there?  Life can get in the way with family issues, a job loss or health issues.  What happens to the money to stay in college?
 
The Village West Rotary wants to help!  We are offering ten $1,000 scholarships through our Club’s fund raising, donations, and Rotary District 5710 grant funds. These scholarships are available to full-time existing college or tech school students and current high school seniors (2020-2021 school year) intending to be full-time students in the Fall of 2021 at a college or tech school.
 
Applicants must be a graduate or current senior of a Wyandotte County public or private school. The Application is downloadable on this website (see "Important Documents" at top of home page). Applications must be completed and returned by Midnight, December 25, 2020, along with an essay (400 words max) on how this scholarship will make a difference to you this year and a letter of recommendation from a former instructor, employer, or social service agency where you’ve been a volunteer.
